What is the LOWEST price you can remember actually buying BTC for on an exchange? Quantity is irrelevant.
You can post your answer if you like, with where you bought it and the approximate date if you can remember. You don't have to say how much you bought Wink

For me it was $96 per bitcoin back in 2013 right before the big price explosion. Unfortunately I didn't get into Bitcoin soon enough Smiley



Poll notes:
As time goes on, more and more new users will be answering this poll with higher and higher figures, so I limited this poll run for 60 days to preserve the accuracy of this poll as it was conducted in 2015.

Don't forget to vote on the other poll for the HIGHEST price you can remember buying BTC for

I'm pretty sure it was 0.012 USD/BTC at bitcoinmarket.com on July 12th, 2010.  The lowest trades on that exchange were for 0.003 USD/BTC (April-May, 2010) so you may need an extra poll option to cover everything.

Lol, yeah.  If I'd have bought one day earlier the price would have been 0.0086 USD/BTC.  You just managed to catch me. Smiley

Around £4, ah those days. Nearly fell off my chair when it hit £12, thought I was rich (had WAY bigger makes and breaks since then of course). I remember before this regulation ballocks too, just buying off Intersango not a care what my bank may think about me sending my money around.

That's a long time ago, but I think I bought some from Jeremy at SpendBitcoins for just under $2. That was before he stopped selling to American customers.

Gawd, it still burns my ass, what happened to me! I became aware of BTC right before it shot up to 15$ back in 2011 (I think it was 2011, the first "bubble") but at that time I was struggling to pay my bills and also didn't fully understand BTC enough to feel comfortable getting some, I could have been mining on my laptop really, I would have mined a few, more than I could right now with a 60Ghs, but I missed that boat. later, that summer, my mother passed away, and when I was talking with my siblings, they informed me there was money coming my way, and I should think about how I was going to use it. Not a fortune, but a substantial amount, and I should consider investing. Now the wheels started to turn! I really had no experience with such things and could only think of the traditional store of value type things like precious metals and real estate...stuff people with money but no real investing knowledge like to go to. PM and real estate are pretty safe bets, but I had already been looking at BTC and decided I would go for a nice healthy position, because I'm greedy and I wanted my nest egg to become a fortune!

Problem here is, inheriting money takes time, there is estate to settle, taxes to pay, lawyers and accountants blah blah blah. seemed like there was delay after delay, even though I was pestering my sister, the executor, to hurry the fuck up...I could feel the pressure building, and the more I learned about BTC the more I heard promises of The Moon AND watched the price slowly creep up. By the time I had money in my account it was early 2013 and BTC was already beginning its rise into what became the great 100$+ bubble of that spring. They were already 20$ each and I was restricted by these n00b exchanges who had really restrictive deposit limits and weren't the most trust worthy either.

Long story a little shorter; I was throwing 2000$ daily at this cash deposit exchange, running to my bank, every day seeing the price go from 20 to 40 to 60 to 80 to 100, all in the space of about 2 weeks, and by the time btc hit 100$ per coin it was getting too rich for my blood, I had spent my limit for that part of my portfolio and I had spent as much on BTC as I could afford to lose without killing myself so I stopped buying with only a little over 100BTc to my name. Not too bad really, but not the thousand plus I originally dreamed of getting. Had I been more solvent a little bit earlier, even a week or two earlier, I would have 10x or more BTC and would already be a millionaire.

On the bright side, I bought a nice stack of gold and silver which is being very nice to me right now.

TL;DR As Get Smart used to say "missed it by that much"

?I remember buying my fair bit back in 2011 when avalon first come around and bought about 60 to 80 BTC back then at $11 to $13 a coin wish had kept the coin now and not got an over sized paper weight that is not even worth turning on any more. Maybe when some good alt comes along but right now just about broke even with avalon when got it but days of mining with 60GH gone and BTC being $11 maybe the coin market will crash even more this year given the fact that a lot of stuff is dropping in price too.
